CONTROLLING SPRING WEED GROWTH IN TAXUS BY FALL APPLICATIONS OF HERBICIDES
One of the major problems in the control of weeds in commercial nurseries is the suppression or elimination of weed growth early in the spring. Cultivation is often difficult to accomplish during this season due to unfavorable soil conditions or because nurserymen are busy digging, shipping or planting stock at that time. This experiment was conducted to determine the effectiveness of some herbicides applied during the fall on the elimination or suppression of weeds the following spring If it is found that herbicides can be applied in the fall and suppress or climate weed growth during the months of March, April and May, it would be great and to the nurseryman.
Five herbicides, or combinations of herbicides, Alanap20G, a combination of SES and CMU, a combination of SES and CIPC, and CIPC were applied on November 1, 1957, to 150 square feet plots in a block of Taxus cuspidata intermedia. Control plots were included and all treatments were replicated 10 times. Buffer strips, 2 feet wide
